9 August 2016 4MOST metrology system image processing
Author Affiliations +
The 4-meter Multi-Object Spectroscopic Telescope (4MOST) instrument uses ~ 2400 individually positioned optical fibres to couple the light of targets into its spectrographs. The metrology system determines the position of the back-illuminated fibres on the focal surface of the telescope. It consists of 4 identical cameras that are mounted on the spider vanes of the secondary mirror of the VISTA telescope and look through the entire optical train, including M1, M2 and the WFC/ADC unit. Here, we describe the image and data processing steps of the metrology system as well as present results from our 1 in 10 sized lab prototype.
